How can I get on Brooklyn’s Democratic County Committee?

A:

Getting on a ballot requires petitioning - collecting a minimum number of signatures from eligible voters. Petitioning season in 2018 ran from June 5 to July 12. The next chance to petition for Kings County Democratic Committee (County Committee) is in June 2020. You must use specific forms and collect signatures only from Democrats who are registered in the Assembly District where you live. The minimum requirement is to collect signatures from 5% of the registered Democrats in your Election District. As the number of voters in each Election District varies, the number of signatures required varies by each Election District, but it's usually somewhere between 30 and 60 signatures.

The good news is that the #RepYourBlock team will calculate the number of signatures you need to collect and give you voter lists, petitions, and any other tools you need to get started. 

If you collect the necessary signatures, but face a primary challenger for your County Committee seat, you will be on the ballot in your Election District on the September Democratic Primary Day for that cycle. You will need to canvass once more and ask your neighbors to vote for you in the primary! Mark your calendars, locate your polling place, and read up on races and candidates in your area.
